Prof. Santanu Chaudhury delivered the keynote speech and Dr. Chiranjoy Chattopadhyay introduced The first International Workshop on Big Data in Culture, Design and Heritage at The Fifth IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Big Data, National University of Singapore on September 13, 2019. The workshop captured the emerging moment of ‘digital humanities’ particularly in India, and focused on one unavoidable aspect of ‘digital’ research in culture, design, and heritage: Big Data. As is commonly understood, the nature of ‘bigness’ in Big Data is not one of size, but because of its nature as networked data. The workshop addressed applications of Big Data in digital culture, design, and heritage. It also highlighted the challenges and opportunities that such a large scale multi-modal data analytics bring to the community in these areas. The workshop brought together researchers from the qualitative and quantitative domains on a common platform and facilitated in answering key interdisciplinary research questions.
